Thanks for the input appletree. I did go to my gp and she said, it's not an infection, have a word with your oncologist, talk about going round in circles.
I'm trying to find some 100% cotton socks for ladies that I could wear in bed of a night, if the nails come off, or get any loser, the last thing I want to do is have them torn off in bed.
Surching the net and ebay to find 100% cotton socks, so far the size is 4-8, I'm only a size 5, any ideas please let me know.
Oh dear, Pinklily, this does sound nasty.
Have you had a chat with your GP? He or she could perhaps recommend a chiropodist, and probably one who could make home visits. It sounds as though you need professional advice.
My own GP has such information and put me onto a really good chiropodist who charges £30.00 for a visit (that's inclusive) and is very helpful. Getting such help through the NHS is, I think, a bit difficult nowadays, but you could make enquiries.
Hope you can get it sorted soon.
I've finished the EC and about to start rads in February. I was really pleased because my finger nails seem to be doing quite well and I'm making sure I use plenty of hand cream and Burt's Bees for my nails, wear warm gloves when out and gloves for washing up etc. But three weeks ago my toenails started to change colour and this week the nails have started to lift off their beds.
I just wondered if anyone could advice me, from their experience, what I can do to make my toes more comfortable as they are very sore and what I should avoid or do to make the whole process a little bit more bearable.
My oncologist said I am going to lose them, but was not very helpful on what to do to prevent infection or discomfort.
